ÎTHE WISHY-WASHY MAN.
The Rage of Rocky Croon Talks Old Horse Sonee. Tke Malneat Trouble with Barry CrlflKn—He Was l£verythints In lie llgloa, lint Never Found the Home Ouse. "Fust and last" I have covered a heap vt ground and saw many sights down here in the valley of dry' bones. But I have yet got to see a wishy-washy man that didn't land himself be tween thedeviland the deep blue sea. and die with his feathers ruffled up the wrong way. It pays to be •traight goods and the same thing oil (the way through. Any man that ain't pluut wjllin to step out and take sides end pick his flag and then stand to the iguns till the cows come home, and,the (chickens fly up to roost, and the evenin stars sing together, is probable to spend this days in vanity and vexation and wind up with a great fret. Too Many for Himself. About the most unliappiest and changeful man thatever got his washin done down in the old Panther Creek set tlement was old man Drury Griffin, .which used to run a water mill a little ways below the confluence of that his ' toric stream. Drury was a middlin good farmer and the most bulliest sort of a mill man, anil so fur as I know he elwaj's got along mighty well in regards »to business and the fieetin things of this pain world. But somehow he never could iget along smooth and easy with the church. Touehin the church and in re ligion Drury was jest simply too many for himself. He always was a church man to some extent, but he didn't have the stickin and stayin qualities. Conse quentially he was forever flounderin and floppin around from the fire into the iryin pan and back again. He started out when he was a right young man by takin stock with the Old (School Baptists, down at Coal Springs church. Henceforwards everything wore along smooth and easy for six months or maybe a little better, but late «long in the summer or early in the fail of the year they helt the regular three days' meetin at Cool Springs, with din- ®er on the grounds and feet washin on Sunday. Right then and there Drury Griffin got his bristles up and kicked out of the traces. He took up a spot Motion Jo the extent that he didn't be- lieve in people washin their feet in pub- lic. and in cold water to boot, and he wouldn't have nothin to do with the •Me show. He didn't make out like he Was smarter than the preacher and he couldn't quote any Scripture to main- tain the kick. He didn't know for cer- tain why. and he didn't, give a continen- ts 1 red. But he jest simply didn't be- lieve in it and never would believe in it if he lived nine hundred and ninety- nine years ou the earth. - Whereas, the church come together end sent a committee to call on Brother -Griffin and talk a few scatteriu grains > \ N -Griffin and talk a few scatteriu grains •of sense into his head if such a thing ■could possibly be did. But. that was all pluperfect vanity. The more they talked the higher Drury kicked till finally at last the committee had to give bim up as a bad egg and a gone goslin. He still stuck to it that he was a natur el- born, genuine Old School Baptist, end as good a member of the church as erry man on the committee, but he was dead square agin the feet washin busi ness and jest simply wouldn't take any in hisn. The committee worked and worried and fumbled and fooled along with him for two days on a stretch and then reported back the general results to the church. After some short talks and seatterin remarks from various and sundry members they took Drury Griffln by the nape of his neck and the •eat of his breeches, as it were, and turned him out of the church and put op the bars behind him. "Another Cn».ln Methodist." By this time Drury Griffin was mad with the human race in general, but. old Coal Springs church im particlar. Tbe more he talked about it the madder he got, till the next news we got lie was foamin at the mouth and cussin like a •tage coach driver. Along in the big protracted meetin times the next summer, by gracious, all of a suddent like Drury Grif fin bloomed out in full as a Methodist •ud got his name on the church books over at Bark Log. Y'ou must recollect he was mad with Old School Baptists and wanted to get as far away from them as he possibly could jest for spite —which it didn't take him long to run ■lap out to the other end of the rope. It was a powerful long jump, but Drury made it with one leap. Now then, it want many months be fore they had Drury up over at Bark Log charged with the general,and fre quent use df United States language, which wu* overcomin to the settlement and unbecomin to a member of the | Methodist church. To put it pat and plain. Drury had got worse and worse and cussed and cussed till he scorched tbe native air, and old Bark Log church had spit in her bands and rolled up her •leeves for busiuess. When they brong Drury up for trial Elder New ton took tbe case in hand and put in sum straight questions. •'Brother Griffin." says he, "It has come to the ears of the church that you have been cussin and carryin on soandloUB both in private and in pub lic. and we want to bear from you. Hava you got anything to say as to why the church should net visit on you tbe usual chastisement meted out to a weak add wayward member?" "1 will own up to ousstn a little, often ' and on, around the edge«." says Drury. U "but aa to my general moral lÉÉSÉlIi; ost walk« is ,,1/T L%, Ki life I am willin to put my record be fore the church and : show down with any man. in the crowd. I am as good a Methodist as any of you, but when I git good mad I will cuss a little unbe- luiowance to myself. Is it agin the rules of the church for a man to engage in a few cuss words when nothin else would do the case justice ?" "Why, to be certainly, of course," says the elder, "it is dead agin the rales for a member to use cuss words under any surroundin calamity." "Well, that aint my understandin of the situation," says Drury. "I have been hearin of cussin Methodists all the days of my life, and' my notion is that most anj' of them will cuss a little when you stir 'em up and git 'em good hot. I don't feel like I am anything hut jest another cussin Methodist." ■ "You have got that down all wrong," the elder went on, "and you will have to read up on the rules in orderment to walk upright and keep yourself in the fold. Ain't you ready now to say you got wrong, and you are sorry for it, and won't do so no more?" "Not- as anybody knows of, breth ren," says Drury. "Seems to me like if a man jest can't worry along without cussin- a little a.round the edges that is a case in pint between him and the good Lord. I have found out that my ruain est weak pint is for cussin, but yet 1 feel like I am as good a Methodist as any man in the crowd 1 , and a hundred common men couldn't throw me over board from the Old Ship. Methodist, Methodist is my name, and Methodist will I die." nevertheless, henceforth thereof, as Drury went on from bad to worse with his weak pint for cussin the dhurch come together and throwed him overboard' and the Old Ship sailed proud and steady on her way. Hut, notwi thstandin From Pillow to Post. For a kxng time after that Drury Griffin etuok to it and maintained that he was a better Methodist than "arry dnrn one" of the men which turned him out of the church. He got madder and madder with tihe mem which were hold in the beim of the Old' Ship, till by and by he give it out that he was goin to build up the true Methodist church. One day he wen't out in the old field and knocked up a pine pole pen, which he called the True Church. He put in tlie beaches aud built a pulpit and bought a Big Bible. Then he fell in with Parson Ze!b Newton—which in the main time Zeb had been turned of out of the church for rtdin a squealin chestnut sorrel horse an the circuit— and Zeb was anonymously elected to be the preacher of the True Church. But it seems as if the 'True Church didn't draw as fast and furious as Drury and Zeb lowed it would. Zeb was the preacher und Drury was the church, and when it oarne to pass that they couldln't turn the created world wrong side out and upside down, they,helt a few cussin matches together, and then adjourned the meetin and quit. But in the run of time Drury Griffin jined in with first one church and them anlother till finally at last he didm't have nowheres to go. He put his mem bership in with the Presbyterians and went along smooth for awhile, but pres ently he got mad "because the}' sot down to sing and riz up to pray." Me lowed that wain't im lime with his no tione of religion, so he took out and quit. The next thing everybody knowed Drury was jined in with tihe Episcopal church, but he didu't stick there six months. 1 had told the folks all along that if Drury Griffin ever got any religion that would keep he would have to take it in the very light ost form, and i lowed maybe he had now found the proper place at last. But he soon took up the notion that dancin was as bad as cussin. And be sides that, be said they didn't do any thing in the church but read prayers and sing songs, and kneel down and get up, aud then get up and kneel down. So Drury he- "riz and fell with 'em" as long as he could' stand it, and then dropped out into the cold) world onest more. To tell the Bible truth, all the churches and any church was too good for Drury Griffin. He had been horned on the other side of every question, and the mainest trouble with Drury Griffin was the all-around cussedness of Drury Griffin. And when his time come he died out of the church, and out of sorts, and out of humor with the whole created human race. Same Till nr* In Politics. Now old man Asey Stribbiin was about as bad off in politics as Drury Griffin was with regards to his religion. Old man Asey didn't have no trouble touehin the church, but when it come to politics he was on the other side every time the convention come to or der. He started out in life as a scream indemocratandstoodon that puncheon for many years. But as time went on he took a fool notion to run for office. man und the distance flag fluttered down in Asey's face. He next made the race for county coroner, and onest more luck run from him like a shot and high constable first, but most of the votes went to the other let in the other man, come under the wire first. Then presently Asey Stribbiin got sick and sore. He made out like some body had cheated him outen what was his by rights. At the same time the onlyest trouble with Asey was that he didn't get votes enough to put him in. the office. What U so now was so then and always will be so. The mainest thing is the votes. Asey thought every blessed man that smiled at him and talked kind and pleasant to him was a Stribbiin man, and then when the votes didn't pan out like he had set the Ag gers down he let the sap run up and talked like a silver-tongued idiot. He heard that old man Tommy Pickens • voted for the other man after talkin like he mought be for Stribbiin, and from that he threaten«! to shoo* Pickens on sight. But right then if Asey had started out to shoot every man that talked like he mought be for Stribbiin and then, voted for the other man on election day he-would be busy with that large and. bloody job even in to this good day and hour. Well, in the run of years, old' man Asey got so ail-fired mad with the democrats till he lit out and went over to the whigs—which it come to pass that the whigs didn't to say need, him any worse than the democrats. Now Asey Stribbiin was n man like this. If he didn't see what he wanted he would ask for it. and. then if the gang he was gallopin with didn't give it to him he wouldn't gallop no more'. If the party played his way he would play, and if they didn't he was ready right then immediately to throw his hand to the pack and quit the game. He soon quit the whigs because they wouldn't give him anything in sight, and then pres ently he turned, out to be a wild and woolly know nothin. He stuck to the know notbins till they went to pieces, butsomehowbei evercouldgetthe seat of his breeches g feased exactly right so he could slide intb a fat office. He kicked and he cussed, and he fumed and he fussed all the days of his life, and finally come to the pass where he wouldn't vote for any livin. man on any ticket. Onest upon a time he got so furious and felonious mad till he swore he wouldn't vote for the Savioui of this lost and ruint world if He was runnin for president on the prohibit tion ticket. And Asey Stribbiin was yet on the sunny side of sixty when he died. But at the same time he died for the good of his country. RUFUS SANDERS. PALMISTRY MADE EASY. Larkin Kcml lier llnuil and Then Told a Friend the Trlclc. "O, Mr. Larkin, read my palm, won't you ?" Larkin, that arch impostor and bluff er, took her hand confidently and scowled. After a moment of intense scrutiny he asked if she was sure she'd be willing to have him tell what he saw. She defied hirn to do his worst. In the half hour since he had met her he had formed some general notions as to what sort of a person she was. On these as a basis he began, touching vaguely but confidently on the charac teristics of her life, her fortune, her tastes, and, most of all, her heart. Ehe was inclined to treat the performance as a joke. "Perhaps I'd better stop," Larkin said, deepening his scowl. "Is said, deepening scowl. "Is your vocabulary becoming ex hausted, Mr. Larkin?" "No; but there are things here that you might prefer not to have mentioned before company." She laughed a little nervously, and told him to go on. After a little pause, lie said slowly: "You are leading a double life. To those about you you show only oiSeltide of your nature, thoughts and your true self are as dif fernt from those you reveal to your friends as night is from day." She started to draw her hand away; then, either from curiosity or bravado, checked herself. "Half of your life is made up of a great regret that lurks in your heart and will not be lived down. In time, perhaps—" She blushed and sprang away. "1 didn't think you'd be so mean," she said. "1 warned you; do not blame me," Larkin answered, with a show of fa tigue after the terrific concentration just endured. She made an excuse to leave the room. "That's such an easy thing that It seems a shame to do it," Larkin laughed after she was gone. "The average girl is sentimental, and the veteran of a se ries of those complications respect fully referred to as love affairs. Tell her that she is 'leading a double life,' and she regards herself as a heroine; speak of 'a great regret,' and her mind turns to her most recent affair. Just put your statements in romantic lan guage, and she'll believe you, unless she's too nearly level-headed. That kind don't care to have their palms read, anyway." "How often do you find a girl who doesn't believe in palmistry, Mr. Lar kin?" some one inquired. But Larkin had become suddenly busy in extract ing a carnation from a bowl, and did not bear.—Chicago Times-llerald. A Little- Knowledge.

Bryan Dellv«rctl a Lengthy Addi Given an Ovation. id St. Louis, Sept. 7.—When Labor day closed Monday night it was the general verdict of all who participated that it bad been the most successful celebra tion of the day ever held in the city. The great parade with which the day's festivities opened proved to be a mon ster affair, and it is estimated that 10, 000 men were in line, with numerous hands, and all ablaze with banners, mottoes and samples of the handiwork of the various callings represented. The tired marchers were not sorry when Concordia park was reached, and m m g -à m ft-® / V A m ■■r WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, there, with many other thousands of their wives and children, and those who did not care to inarch, they spent the rest of the day and evening in vari ous sports and in listening to speeches. William Jennings Bryan was their piece de resistance, and the celebrated Nebraskan could certainly find no fault at the manner of his reception, which amounted almost to an ovation. It was a Bryan gathering. The multitude was not confined to the sturdy sons and daughters of toil. The announcement that the brilliant silver orator was to deliver an address served to attract persons from every walk of life—bankers, business men, laborers, with their mothers, wives, daughters and sisters—all who could take advan tage of the new American holiday, were there in splendid numbers. Political affiliations, for the nonce, were set aside, and all united to make the occasion memorable in the annals of St. Louis trades unions, and one long to be remembered in the eventful tion help the to in It as I ! I ' I a long to be remembered in the eventful career of the distinguished Nebraskan. The only drawback to the success of the celebration was the weather. It was uncomfortably hot. It was four o'clock when Mr. Bryan mounted the stand and began his ad dress. He spoke one hour, llis first gesture was the signal for a tre mendous burst of applause. He spoke with the accustomed deliberateness, enunciating pungent paragraphs with telling effect. His articulation was perfect, and very few among his thou sands of listeners missed a sylable. His talk was prolific of epigrammatic say ings, apropos of the occasion. The applause with which he was greeted at every period testified to the crowd's appreciation. Frequently he was interrupted with shouts from enthusiastic admirers, such as "That's right, Billy, give it to him hard." "Good for you, old boy; hit him again." "You're all right; we always thought you were. As he finished his exordium Mayor Ziegenhein approached the platform. The speaker stopped, and "Uncle Henry," for a moment, monopolized the attention of the assemblage. When interrupted for any cause and addressed by one of the crowd, Mr. Bryan would pleasantly reply, democracy was at all times in evidence, and the fact seemed to be fully under stood and appreciated. When lie con cluded his address lie was given three rousing cheers aud a tiger. Mayor Ziegenhein followed him. His honor welcomed the laboriug men in a I few fitting remarks. Ex-Gov. Stone delivered a brief and ; dignified address, and was heartily ap- j plaudcd. Congressman Bartholdt was | Ka the last speaker. He won the plaudits j of the crowd by saying that he had j voted for the bills to create an arbitra- I tion commission and a labor commis- on sion. Furthermore, he pledged him self that when the senate measure re striding the powers of courts in the 1 matter of injunctions came up in the ] house he would cast his ballot for it. This statement was vooiforously ap plauded. It was 5:20 when the speaking was finished. The committee arose lo es cort Mr. Brvau to his carriage. The crowd ascended the frail platform and flocked about him for a handshake, aud it was witli difficulty that way could he made for the distinguished guest to reach his carriage. At 8:80 Mr. Bryan received another cordial reception at the Jefferson club. Then again there were more admirers to be greeted ut the hotel. It was late when the apostle of free silver was at length able to turn off the lights iu his chamber and woo the drowsy god of peace. Taken all in all the day's celebration was a grand success and, thanks to the untiring efforts of the leaders, no dis turbances marred the festivities. Ills Iuupportuue Shelling.

This is no id.le invective. il Silver. It is only nec first to consider the Objects at essary which our masters aim, and second, the methods which they have heretofore employed. And first os to their aims. They have left no room to doubt that they desire to abolish all government paper dilation, and substitute therefor bank paper. Our government paper is in round numbers as follows: cir Greenbacks .5346,000,000 Silver certificates, registeringsll- _ _ ver dollars. 430,000,000 Treasury notes of 1890, represent ing silver bullion. 1G0,000,000 Total . $936,000,000 Their first object is the cancellation and destruction of the whole greenback circulation. Next, the destruction of the legal tender quality of the silver dollars and the destruction, of all the silver certificates. The actual circula tion of the silver dollars, when robbed of their legal tender character, they tliink, would be inconsiderable. This would be followed up by a sale of all tbe silver coin and bullion, above, say, $50,000,000 for the benefit of speculators in silver, who would buy it at the low price caused by precipitating so large an amount upon the market. This large and steady contraction of thecurrency, which has already reached the line of a money famine, is intended by its authors to further prostrate busi ness, to Ibanlcrupt merchants and man ufacturers, and to starve the country into accepting their scheme, make no concealment that tills scheme is to inject into our financial system the poisonous blood of irredeemable bank notes instead of the healthy and natural supply of real money coined from that one of the precious metals, the coinage of which they have stopped by criminal methods. The coming months of the year will be marked by increasing business fail ures, discouragement and desperation. This increasing prostration and par alysis, with increasing failures and in creasing suicides, are being planned for, by the despotic power which controls this administration, as deliberately os it prepared and brought on at the ap pointed time the panic of 1893, and with the same object in view. All the states men agree that the country enjoyed a large measure of prosperity from 1878 until 1892 inclusive. This period was They until 1892 inclusive. This period was exactly coincident with the partial res toration of silver coinage in 1878, and its enlargement in 1890. In 1892 the gold power determined upon a desperate struggle against silver. They could not again secretly sneak a clause into any pending measure for the demonetiza tion of silver, as they did in 1873 by the help of .Tohn Sherman, and they de cided upon onep warfare. They needed only the complicity of President Cleve land and his secretary of the treasury. They had already chosen Cleveland as their instrument, and foisted him upon the democratic party by corrupting the convention, and through him they had chosen a secretary of the treasury who would be their slave. The}' had pre viously used Harrison and his latest sec retary of the treasury. Charles Foster, to inaugurate a dishonest and unlawful practice of redeeming silver obligations in gold. This produced a run on the gold in the treasury, which so reduced It that it wns only by the skin of his teeth that Mr. Foster was able to turn over to his successor the $100,000.000 in gold, which Sherman had originally fixed as the amount of the redemption reserve. Even Mr. Carlisle squirmed a little when he was called upon to con tinue this infamous outrage of exclu sive gold redemption. He must have talked too freely, for his alleged pur pose to pay out silver dollars got into into the papers. He was instantly muz zled by the president, who immediately authorized a published statement, that gold redemption would be maintained. Carlisle got into the traces as meekly as any old omnibus horse, and pulled on I his load as faithfully during his whole ! term. Exclusive gold redemption almost I immediately produced the intended ' effect of cutting down the reserve be I low what the bankers had fixed as "the Carlisle, Cleveland and I ; j n | Ka f e * ; y line, j bankers and their joint newspaper j organs immediately advertised that the I treasury was bankrupt and the evountry on the verge of ruin. This alarmed the foreign holders of American securities, who plunged them into our market for 1 whatever they would bring in currency, ] nnd they then got gold in exchange for their currency and took it out of the country. The administration and the bankers made themselves bears in the money market. They devoted their en ergies to breaking down confidence in the government, and business confi dence between individuals. This they did as the first step toward creating the panic which would alone serve their purpose. They then raised a clamor that the purchase and coinage of silver was alarming the world, and must be stopped. It had not ut any time cre ated the slightest alarm or disturbance. On the contrary, under it the country was most prosperous. Benjamin Har rison certified to the splendid effect of the Sherman purchase net upon the business of the country, with its pur chase of 4,500,000 ounces of silver per month. Read it in his message of De cember, 1890. The first sign of a want of confidence in this country wns given as a result of Foster's and Carlisle's a put-up job of a raid on the treasury gold, and the false bowl of the Cleve land administration against the public credit. As soon as Cleveland was in augurated the repeal of the Sherman purchase act was loudly demanded by the gold trust. Who that rend it can ever forget the dark chapter of history recorded in tho New York Sun, when, | without contradiction at any time, it | gave the names of great bankers who 1 met at an up-town residence on a Bna. day night, with Carlisle present, decided upon a plan, of action for purpose of producing a punie through which to effect legislation on this sub ject? It was decided in that conference to pass the word throughout the cou», try to the baulks which they could in fluence that the bank customers must be refused accommodation; their uotet must not foe discounted; tlieir ing notes must n<$t be extended business men must all be driven wall. It was then to be and the niaiur and to the explained to them that the reason, why the Innijw could no longer credit good and solvent customers was that the whole financial system of the country was imperiled by the .purchase and coinage of silver. fS food which was making good blood even.

We have recited these well-known facts because it seemed necessary foi thepurpose of remindingthepeoplewhat these enemies of mankind are capable of doing. The application we makeof this piece of history is that the same power is now as firmly bent on destroying the greenbacks, coin notes and silver tificates as they were four years on closing the mints to silver. They will produce, if necessary, the distress, with the same object of tor turing the people into surrendering to their outrageous monetary schemes; They thrive upon the distress of other«. If business paralysis does not worry the country into submission they will invoke their former instrument of tor ture—a sharp panic. Forewarned is forearmed. The peo ple understand them now.

What is needed is a rising tide of public in dignation against their schemes and the methods they employ to carry them out.
